I have passed the first two CFA exams and worked at a mergers and aquisition investment bank as an analyst. I am a growth at a reasonable price investor who is interested in companies that are well managed and have solid long term potential. I am an investment consultant.
I'm an investor and a Chartered Business Valuator (CBV). I have been investing since I was a teenager. I love my work. I manage a private investment company and I specialize in business valuation.
I'm a huge skeptic by nature. If you had to put me in an investment category, I would fall under "contrarian/value" investor. It's not an investment style that I picked but one that reflects my personality.
Regarding my articles, I think to present my ideas present in a neutral light, without any hype or promotion, which is a rare thing these days.
Please note that any articles or comments on Seeking Alpha are not linked to my work, and the opinions or content mentioned are mine personally.

An equity analyst with several years experience analyzing stocks across geographies and sectors. I make blended valuations but try to identify stocks for which the market is valuing based upon the next 1 to 2 years, but for which I believe that the real value lies what it can become in the next 5 years+. My main area of expertise is in UK stocks, but I have also studied US retail and consumer goods stocks fairly extensively.
I work for a company in London, but the views expressed on here are my own and not those of my firm. For ethical reasons I will not comment on certain stocks, as I'm already paid by my employer for my views on these companies.
I hold a degree in financial mathematics and am a CFA charterholder.
I've been contributing to SA since 2011, with a break to join the PRO editorial team from 2013-2015. I got my Series 7 and 63 back in 2000, and watched the dot-com bubble peak and then burst in real time at a small, tech-focused retail brokerage in NYC.
